In partnership with Esri and National Geographic, SDGs Today: The Global Hub for Real-Time SDG Data is a platform developed by the Sustainable Development Solutions Network (SDSN). This one-of-a-kind open access data platform has the potential to revolutionize how we understand and communicate the urgency of the SDGs and how we develop solutions, by providing a much-needed virtual space where key stakeholders from around the world can access and engage with timely data (updated annually or in more frequent intervals) on the SDGs and learn how to use the data effectively to push Agenda 2030 forward. The platform also houses GIS training and education resources and supports countries and other institutions to produce, share, and engage with the data to help ensure that we meet the global goals by 2030.
The Human Rights Guide to the SDGs is a searchable database illustrating the links between the Sustainable Development Goals and more than 70 international human rights instruments, labour standards, and environmental agreements. The Guide illustrates the human rights anchorage of the 2030 Agenda and is an essential tool to develop a rights-based approach to sustainable development implementation, monitoring, and reporting.
The Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX) is an open platform for sharing data across crises and organisations. Launched in July 2014, the goal of HDX is to make humanitarian data easy to find and use for analysis. Our growing collection of datasets has been accessed by users in over 200 countries and territories. HDX is managed by OCHA's Centre for Humanitarian Data, which is located in The Hague.
The SDG16 Data Initiative is a collective project by a consortium of organisations seeking to support the open tracking of the global commitments made by more than 194 countries on peace, justice, and strong institutions.
The initiative aims to complement the current efforts underway to develop an official indicator framework for monitoring the SDGs and respond to the gap in comprehensive data on SDG16 issues. The Inter-agency Expert Group on SDG Indicators (IAEG-SDGs) has identified 23 global indicators under SDG16’s 12 targets. It is intended that national statistical systems will eventually produce the majority of the data for these indicators. The UN Statistical System and other global organizations will then collate this official data at the global level.
The UPR-SDG Data Explorer is a searchable database that links more than 55,000 recommendations of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It allows users to explore how UPR recommendations for specific countries, regions or groups of rights-holders are connected to the 169 targets contained in the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
UN Biodiversity Lab is a geospatial platform designed to support policymakers develop data-driven sustainable development solutions. With over 100 of the world’s best datasets on nature, climate, and sustainable development, the platform enables users to upload national data in secure national workspaces, visualize global and national data, run basic analyses, and create maps, all in a free, open-source environment that does not require any previous GIS experience.
This platform provides access to data compiled through the UN System in preparation for the Secretary-General's annual report on "Progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals".The development of this global SDG database dissemination platform is an ongoing process led by the United Nations Statistics Division, and it will continue to be further improved over time
To help countries benchmark and reduce the time and cost of trading across border, the UN Regional Commissions jointly conduct the UN Global Survey on Trade Facilitation and Paperless Trade. The Survey currently covers 120 countries around the globe, and 47 measures related to the WTO's Trade Facilitation Agreement (TFA), as well as emerging regional and global initiatives on paperless trade or e-trade, such as the recent Framework Agreement on Facilitation of Cross-Border Paperless Trade in Asia and the Pacific (FA-CPT). The Survey leads to the production of a Global Report and five Regional Reports, which aim at providing insightful information for policy makers to harness trade as a key means of implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The Survey is conducted in collaboration with growing number of global and regional partners, since 2015 and every two years.
This is the official website of the United Nations providing information on the development and implementation of an indicator framework for the follow up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. It is maintained by the United Nations Statistics Division (UNSD), a division of the Department of Economic and Social Affairs (DESA).
